Honda hopes to lure in hip, young buyers with its boxy Step Bus concept vehicle, debuting at the 2006
Reminiscent of Scion’s square-edged xB, the Step Bus has a fully reconfigurable interior that can make room for five passengers or plenty of oversized cargo, “everything,” explained Mendel, “an owner needs to live large in the city.”
Among its high-tech features, the Honda prototype delivers an advanced navigation system and party-ready audio system, as well as picture holders on the instrument panel. There’s plenty of storage space, including a ceiling-mounted tray.
Honda officials insisted the Step Bus is “purely a styling concept,” but insiders hinted the basic dimensions could show up in a future production model, most likely targeted first at the trendy Japanese home market.
